A grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and signature Pixar humour, Brave uncovers a new tale in the mysterious Highlands of Scotland. Headstrong Merida (Kelly Macdonald) a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson) refuses to accept one of the suitors presented by Lords MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). This dangerous defiance of age-old custom inadvertently unleashes chaos, forcing her to discover the meaning of true bravery before it’s too late. Pixar’s most daring and sophisticated film to date is its first to feature a female protagonist.
